Netflix has renewed The Upshaws for a final season, Part 7, consisting of twelve episodes. Part 6 will premiere in early 2025 with the final part to come later. Bennie Upshaw, the head of a Black working class family in Indianapolis, is a charming, well-intentioned mechanic and lifelong mess just trying his best to step up and care for his family – wife Regina, their two young daughters and firstborn son, the teenage son he fathered with another woman — and tolerate his sardonic sister-in-law, all without a blueprint for success. But the Upshaws are determined to make it work, and make it to the next level, together. In this upcoming part, the Upshaws continue to ride life’s ups and downs, including new jobs, bigger dreams, health struggles and some major life surprises but still hanging on with the love that comes with family.

Season three of The Legend of Vox Machina premieres October 3 on Prime Video with three episodes weekly. The twelve episode season returns with a new and exciting title sequence.

Our lovable band of misfits must rise above inner (and outer) demons to try and save their loved ones, Tal’Dorei, and all of Exandria. 

Exploding Kittens premieres July 12 on Netflix. Earth sucks, so God gets fired and sent to Earth to reconnect with humanity. The catch? He’s trapped in the body of a chubby house cat. As part of Godcat’s rehabilitation, he moves in with a dysfunctional family and tries to solve their problems, but ends up spending a lot of time chasing laser pointers. And to top it off, Godcat’s next-door neighbor, who is also a cat, turns out to be none other than his nemesis, the Antichrist. The result is the ultimate fight between good versus evil… except, Godcat is distracted by a pigeon he saw in the yard and Devilcat is busy napping on someone’s laptop. The series is based on the card game of the same name.
